The dream of many can be a Parisian apartment, the interior of which will always remind you of its location in the center of fashion and elegance. In our minds, Paris is the smell of morning freshness and the chirping of birds in a cozy courtyard that persistently awake from sleep, preparing to meet with a new, eventful day.
Apartment for a designer
Not so long ago in an apartment of 100 square meters. meters has been repaired. Interior changed with the requests of the owner, the Parisian couturier and the collector of African painting. According to the plan, informal events will take place here with the participation of representatives of the fashion industry and the creative bohemians of Paris.
It was important to create two different zones: public, when the living room, the kitchen and the additional toilet were to enter, and the personal bedroom, the dressing room, the guest rooms and the two bathrooms. Renovated interior lost interior partitions, becoming more spacious and open. The entrance zone clearly delimits the functional parts of the apartment, providing comfort to numerous visitors.
Compact kitchen in a spacious lobby
One of the key requirements of the customer was the creation of a completely inconspicuous kitchen, since she rarely cooks at home. As a result, the kitchen was combined with the hallway, where guests enter, barely stepping through the threshold of the apartment.
Mirrors and marble
But visitors are impressed not so much by the cuisine as by the idyllic composition, consisting of their objects with a comfortable, smooth texture. A soft light envelops the marble monolith of the island, is reflected in the mirror wall behind which the guest toilet is hidden, and emphasizes the built-in furniture of a muffled gray hue.
The walls of the guest restroom are covered with tiles made of Iznik ceramics. It literally fills the interior with its dynamic ornament with floral motifs. When the sliding door is open, the strange pattern reflected in the mirrors is intriguing and stirring curiosity.
Space and the world
As in most of the Parisian houses, the layout of the apartment provides for exits in two quiet courtyards that protect the residents from the noise of the streets. The new design provides each room opening from the window with a panorama of the courtyard, filling the interior with natural light and fresh air.
During the repair, a number of walls were dismantled and accidentally damaged the parquet. Therefore, a dark oak cover with a chevron pattern was replaced by wide panels of light Oregon pine. The position of the boards together with the ceiling lighting sets the direction of movement from the hallway to the living room.
Materials for the bedroom and individual zone differ from those that are involved in the design of public spaces. Since it is a secluded personal area, the designers decided to hide it in the depth of the apartment as securely as possible. A massive door to the full height of the wall further delimits the zones, protecting against unwanted intrusions.
In the dressing room there are oak cabinets up to the ceiling with handles made of acrylic. The style and personality of the private bathrooms emphasizes their laconic decor. In one - a snow-white matte tile with mirrors creates a sense of purity. In the second - shine and radiance emits a bright glossy tile, delineated by black seams.
The task of redevelopment was to create smooth transitions between zones through the competent use of materials. Now the apartment has a lot of light and space, so necessary for the customer who has seen the world. Here she will be able to showcase her collections and relax after noisy activities in her secluded bedroom.
A romantic city can not but impart to its inhabitants a subtle taste that manifests itself in everything, whatever it is created. Maybe, because this stylish, modern apartment in the style of minimalism conquers its spacious and bright way?
